The grilled corned beef hash is the best! I do wish they had some gluten-free sandwich options, but hey, I can skip the bread.

What a great place to find! Fast friendly service for our group of 5, and all of our food was great! You would do well to visit this gem, if you have the chance.

We always choose The Hitching Post when we want good home cooking. Especially in the winter it's so cozy and the stick-to-your-ribs meals are just right to fill your empty tummy. We love the mock turtle soup which, to our knowledge, can't be found anywhere...More

Went for breakfast last Sunday morning, found the service to be fast and friendly, coffee was always kept up with. The food came faster than we expected and everything was exactly as expected. Very good experience and we will definitely be back again.

Their fried chicken is amazing. The meat is moist and tender, and the coating is perfect. It's not as heavily breaded as KFC or Lee's and the taste is perfect. Service was friendly and fast.

Yes this is the same restaurant also famous for fried chicken. I think that Billy B must have been at the kellogg ave. location. We do not serve a BBQ/Sloppy Joe sandwich. We are separate owners, Menu is similar but not the... More
